For anyone who did not see Sundays Moto GP from Argentina. It is on Channel 5 on Tuesday night at 7-0-clock. It is a must watch for loads of reasons. Brit winner, contravershall  start and loads of pushing and crashing by Mark Marquez and others. Make your own mind up who is the biggest loser affraid affraid affraid

Love the picture of M.Markez. Did Rossi suggest it for next race.

Worst chaos i've ever seen in moto gp!
Agree it is a must watch though.
I think MM crossed the line.
Disregard for the rules and dangerous overtakes, highlighting his complete lack of sportsmanship. Not just cos i am a Rossi fan either!

I had just got to see the race and think that Cal did a brilliant job to win it.
Marquez on the other hand was a complete ass! 
A great Rider but no sportsman in my opinion, a two wheel version of Lewis Hamilton.
He should have been black flagged on two occasions for dangerous riding. The sport has enough risks without the likes of him barging people off the track like a spoilt brat.

Great comment about a two wheel version of Hamilton.

The only problem is Rossi has a history of similar antics when ne was younger,forcing other riders off.Sete Gibernau on last lap to win title. But it does make the next round in USA a must watch Cool

That will be interesting,  I'll wager that Marquez has to clear off from the start to avoid the posse chasing him.
That's if he's not ordered to start from the pit lane for his own safety!

I wouldn't say Hamilton is any worse than someone like Schumacher was - the crazy thing about MM is that it is just often so unnecessary. He was so much faster than everyone else he could have passed anyone he wanted safely and without criticism if he had an ounce of patience and would have finished higher up the order because he wouldn't have had the penalties.

If you make the world your enemy through your riding/driving but it benefits you in the history books then that's one thing but Marquez manages to upset everyone through ridiculous/dangerous riding AND disadvantages himself in the points - lose/lose!
